Veronica is a sudent in Cancun to become a veterinarian.
She has two years left to finish her dream.
Several years ago her father left the family and her mother struggled to cope and provide. A year ago, while she was riding her bycycle to work she was hit by a car and received painful injuries. She began to self medicate for the pain and soon became a completely different person, addictive and mean. Whatever meager money Veronica could make her mother would take and increasingly the situation became too dangerous for Veronica to live there.
She moved in with a childhood friend and his father (nothing romantic) but togther they lived in a bad neighborhood with only one single person bed which meant tight and difficult living.
In December, Veronica was notified her mother had been murdered in a drug prostituion dispute with three men. Alone Veronica went to the cemetary to sing the lullabies her mother sang to her when she was a little girl.
Recently the father where she was temporarily living decided it was too difficult for Veronica to be there and has asked her to leave.
Veronica classes require a 100% commitment to school, and she attends from 11 to 10 Monday through Saturday. The studies demand hours of homework and special clinical work.
While much of her tuitition is won by her excellent grades, monthly lab fees and clinics are a huge financial burden.
To add to her basic needs she now has to find housing where she can study and live.
Often she does not eat because she has no money.
She is an accomplished artist having done several mural projects and walls throughout Cancun.
She would prefer to do art for you who contribute but schoolwork will come first.
She continues to earn a little money selling cupcakes and small mural projects.
Veronica was once a rising star in Olympic gymnastics, but had to quit to work. She is a nice moral girl who would gladly meet you and struggle with her English.
I invite you to follow our lead and help this worthy young lady.
She says " I will have rent and utitlities, of $450 US each month. It is for a room and no kitchen, I have to travel to and back from school each day and hope to eat once a day about $400 US each month. My lab and school costs are averaging about $300 each month.
I have bank loan of $4000 US which I try to pay $200 each month. I hope to have enough work in the mornings to pay for other things like cleanïng items, personals stuff and I have two precious puppies that I Iove and love me. I am alone"
"My needs are great right now, I have to pay final fees to finish this session and I am supposed to be out now of the house
Thanks for reading her story and I hope you can help some.
I will make you proud some day
